|Osprey at Thorney Deeps|
|viewed from The Stable, it might have been closer to the eastern sea wall but i didn't have the time to try there|
Friday 19 August. Green Woodpecker, 3 Whitethroats, 3 Willow Warblers and a Chiffchaff were all I saw on Mill Hill before breakfast. Megan and I then walked from Chantry Hill to Rackham Hill and back. It was breezy and visibility was at times poor. We saw at least 3 Ravens, a pair making it clear ot a red Kite who was king of the castle, the castle being a large stack of hay bales. Also 3 Whitethroats, 4 Willow Warblers, 4 Yellowhammers and a Corn Bunting. An evening visit to the Adur for low tide produced 65 Ringed Plovers and 11 Dunlin but few gulls.
